, republican governor chris christie. just six days out from the election. interesting for many reasons and mostly because chris christie is a top romney surrogate and highly critical of the president in the past but since the storm lavished praise on the president's handling of the storm's wrath. before heading to the jersey shore, the president's made an unscheduled stop at fema headquarters. this is the president meeting with several administration and cabinet persons there. we're told he addressed everyone around the table thanking them for the work and warning that the country's not out of the woods yet. joining us now nbc news political director chuck todd on the phone and ron allen live in point please sant beach, new jersey. todd, i'll start with you. we have chris christie with president obama and others say what else was supposed to happen here? i mean, these men may be from different sides of aisle but we know they're still without power and lost their homes and the other issue still facing the region. >> that's right. we are here in atlantic city. he is up in the chopper wit

showing the massive destruction along the new jersey shore. governor chris christie called the impact on his state unthinkable and said it would take months to recover. the storm swept houses from their foundation and left parts of the coast under water. new york city also dealing with devastating floods. the subway remains closed after damage to the system was called the worst in its 108-year history. meanwhile, massive fire in a beachfront neighborhood in queens, new york, destroyed nearly 100 homes overnight and into the morning. firefighters have been blocked from getting to the fire due to the high floodwaters. and as we told you yesterday, a construction crane that collapsed due to high winds remain dang top a 74-floor luxury high rise, thousands were ordered to leave nearby buildings. nearly 8 million homes are still without power today across 20 states. the worst of it is in new york, new jersey and pennsylvania. right now i want to bring in dillon dryer. thank you for joining us. just run through a brief outline of what's going on. give us a sense of the depth and the duratio
. staten island now stands at 12 out of a growing death toll of about 60 americans. chris christie was with president obama today, touring some of the communities in ruin along the shoreline. both politicians and leaders going out of their way to emphasize that day three of this natural disaster is still no time for partisan politics. >> i want to thank the president. we spent a significant afternoon together, surveying the coastline. we were on marine one together, and we had an opportunity to discuss it it at length. go to the shelter, have him see people's concerns. we have lots of challenges. challenges now to get back to normalcy. so we need to get power restored as quickly as possible. make sure people have clean drinks water. hospitals are taken care of, and that we get kids back to school. i'm pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately to help give us those things while we're in the car riding together. he worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. i think this is our sixth conversation since the weekend, it's been a great working relati
that chris christie, if i can be political for a second in the midst of this, chris christie is the guy who gave the keynote address at the republican convention. and chris christie has nothing but -- has had nothing so far nothing but good things to say about the president. that's nothing the president needs to talk about. that's nothing any of his aides or advisers or campaign people need to talk about. but it won't go unnoticed as chuck says in this media environment. >> let's look at what governor christie of new jersey had to say today on the "today" show and on "morning joe." >> i was on the phoned a might nid again with the president personally. he's expedited the declaration of new jersey as a disaster area. the president has been outstanding in this. the president has been all over this and deserves great credit. i have been on the phone with him yesterday personally three times. he gave me his number at the white house and told me to call him if i needed anything and he absolutely needs it. it's been very good working with the president and his administration. >> he also responded
is heading to new jersey. he'll join governor chris christie to see the devastation on the ground himself. meanwhile, governor romney, he's back on the trail in florida. there's still just six days until the election. what does that tell us about where the campaign stakes are really in play this morning. good morning from washington. it's wednesday, october 31st, 2012. happy halloween. this is "the daily rundown." i'm chuck todd. let's get right to may first reads of the morning. we're still a long way from recovery. today after hurricane sandy's devastation we're seeing the very first signs of a return to what may be some normalcy as millions attempt to put the pieces back together. this hour new york city mayor michael bloomberg will ring the opening bell at the new york stock exchange which plans to be fully operational despite blackouts and flooding in lower manhattan. two of the area's major airports, jfk and newark in new jersey have opened with some limited service this morning. but new york's laguardia airport remains closed after major flooding. overall, nearly 19,000 flights can
. but this year, it is not halloween because it cannot be halloween ever. today governor chris christie postponed halloween today by executive order for the whole state of new jersey, the state hardest hit by hurricane sandy. they will be moving halloween to monday, monday, november 5th, in order to protect new jersey's young trick-or-treaters from floodwaters and live wires and downed trees. these crews were fixing fallen power lines in toms river, new jersey, today. nearly 2 million households in new jersey are still without electricity today, day three. for reference in terms of how much of the country that means, even if there were only one person in each of the new jersey households without power, which isn't true, even if it was just one, the number of households without power in new jersey means there are more people in day three than the population of each of these states that is marked on the map this is a huge number of americans we are talking about here. and this is not over. this is not something that is done. it is not past tense. widespread flooding is still present. and the nation
're dealing with a chris christie, a michael bloomberg, and an andy cuomo. these are three guys who are not shy. and if they think the federal government was not helping them, was not being aggressive, they thought the president wasn't on top of this or wasn't doing everything that they thought the federal government could do, don't you think they'd run, not walk to a tv camera and let people know? so you're in a unique situation here with a hard-hit area, so three very politically savvy, media savvy governors in the most important media market in the world. you don't want to mess this up. so i think this is a case where it's good politics not to play politics and just throw yourself into disaster relief because you're dealing with a high population area that, frankly, you mess this up, the whole world is going to know about it. >> yeah, howard, what's impressive to me is he's going to new jersey today. he went to jersey. we saw the pictures. not to one of those states that we got a little tired covering basically, the so-called swing states. he went to the states in need today. >>
concern and compassion for our state. >> new jersey governor chris christie has decided to play the role of a greek column today for president obama. >> there will be some folks that the criticize me for complimenting him, but i speak the truth. >> let's bring in mark murray. i believe it was tuesday or wednesday in the first read team that whoever loses on tuesday will likely point to sandy as the reason why. >> well, tamron, that's like in a sports game where oftentimes a controversial call at the end of a game by the referee, that people blame that. but history never looks at those controversial calls by the referees. while partisans might blame sandy, we have two years worth of campaigning on both sides that show the totality of this contest more than hurricane sandy. sandy freezed this contest in place and gave the president a big he leadership moment, which he was able to use with governor christie. >> to your point, that leadership moment with chris christie could have played out i imagine in many ways with the president's travel schedule. the fact he's there with chris christie a
chris christie. >>> coming up, how hurricane sandy has exposed one of mitt romney's biggest lies about president obama. that's in the rewrite. new prilosec otc wildberry is the same frequent heartburn treatment as prilosec otc. now with a fancy coating that gives you a burst of wildberry flavor. now why make a flavored heartburn pill? because this is america. and we don't just make things you want, we make things you didn't even know you wanted. like a spoon fork. spray cheese. and jeans made out of sweatpants. so grab yourself some new prilosec otc wildberry. [ male announcer ] one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn. satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. that's the sound of car insurance companies these days. here a cheap, there a cheap, everywhere a cheap... you get it. so, what if instead of just a cheap choice, you could make a smart choice? like, esurance for example. they were born online and built to save people money from the beginning. it's what they've always done. not just something they cheap about. that's insurance for the modern world. esurance. now backed
to survey the wost of the damage alongside the state's governor chris christie. the deadly storm responsible for 59 deaths according to the app and 59 billion in damage, ripped up boardwalks and left 2 million without power. governor christie has take an prominent role in the disaster recovery but also been content to share the spotlight with the president. despite the fact that christie remains a surrogate for the romney campaign, his praise of the commander in chief storm response has been oversized and unsensored, downright christy-en. this display of bipartisan has created confusion on both sides of the aisle. in today's "new york times" maureen dowd writes that, quote -- white house officials seem a bit flummoxed by christie's bear hug. they speculate christie who always puts chris fi first has decided it's better for his presidential ambitions to be a maverick blue state governor with a democratic chief executive exiting in 2016 than to have president romney and tea party republicans in congress pulling him to the extreme right for the next eight years. christie for his part shrugged o
on the homestretch. >> president obama tour devastated areas of new jersey with governor chris christie. >> she's sick it and crying her heart out about it. >> i'm tired. >> unusual approach to getting goods over the border,ing agents came across the jeep as it got stuck. >> all that -- >> give me a break. >> you wear a belt i'll start drawing a miss. >> -- and all that matters. >> amazing time laps video of sandy slamming new york city. >> few more days and no power new york might get weird. >> on cbs "this morning." >> speaking foreign language >> when your city is flooding that's as bad as antonio [ bleep ] banderas. >>> welcome to cbs "this morning." i'm charlie rose in new york, norah o'donnell is in washington. the extent of superstorm sandy's damage has become clearer and more alarming, five a day. this morning sandy is blamed for 75 deaths in ten states. and about 5 million homes and businesses still have no electricity. >> in new york city many subway and commuter trains are now running and the city has put restrictions on drivers trying to get into manhattan. drivers also face severe
donnell in virginia. chris christie in new jersey. even bobby jindal in louisiana. have praised the fact right now there is a close partnership between the white house and the governor's republican and democratic governors. but listen talk about fema. paul ryan, his budget cut -- "new york times" reports this morning. congressional republicans cut 43% out of the primary fema grants that pay for disaster preparedness. remember eric cantor. remember peter, eric cantor, the hurricane struck his district fema wanted to go in there. they wanted more money because of some of the disasters. they asked for more money to deal with the earthquake. even in cantor's district. he said no. we're not going to give fema anymore money unless you cut money from healthcare, you know. so they've been -- anti-disaster relief and again, mitt romney who wants to give it to the states, get rid of fema, put it in the hands of the state or maybe the private sector. can you imagine, can you imagine with this hurricane hitting the coast like new jersey or
jersey governor chris christie in the aftermath of the storm. how is the white house handling those complaints? >> well, martin, good afternoon. the white house publicly is saying they're not going to comment on the complaints or the president's visit really, what it could mean politically, because they say this is not a time for politics. i can tell you privately though that both democrats and republicans were a little bit surprised by governor christie's tone yesterday. they said he could have thanked the president, but he was really effusive about it. i want to make the important point i spoke to one of my republican sources who lived in the areas that was battered by sandy and he said, look, it is possible that governor christie is just very thankful for the president being there because there are so many people who are suffering. having said that, we are less than a week out from election day, so, of course, the visit will be viewed through a political lens. of course, governor christie presides over a blue state. he's up for re-election next year and, of course, there are rumb
did not. there's been a bit of a political pushback going on this evening. governor chris christie earlier this afternoon called out atlantic city mayor admonishing him for keeping shelters on this barrier island instead of bussing people off the island as they did last year during irene. and that's why we have a situation. let's walk over here and show you what the rest o of atlantic city is dealing with. this is an access ramp that takes you up to the boardwalk. so these are the streets of atlantic city down here. this is what it looks like. several feet of water covering the street. and here's where things became a problem. you have 400 people on the other side of the city who decided to ride out the storm and stay in their homes and as we talked earlier today, flood water was coming into those homes and there was no way for local emergency crews to get to them. so they had to mobilize national guard units to get those people out of their homes. things got so dangerous they had to pull the personnel back. so there were a couple hundred people still in their homes on the bay side
. this is the amusement park at seaside heights before and after the storm. governor chris christie toured his battered state by air, described what happened as unthinkable. >> the devastation that's happened to new jersey is beyond what's happened to anyone else, at least from the reports i've seen so far. that should come as no shock since the storm made landfall here. >> reporter: it hit just south of atlantic city, the gambling and tourism city, leaving residents who defied the mandatory evacuation order stranded. dozens had to be stranded from shelters of last resort where the power failed. in northern new jersey, more search and rescue, after a tidal surge pushed a river over its banks. the water rose five feet in a matter of minutes. >> it's like a lake in our basement. and it filled up to our stairs. >> there was no phone lines, the electricity was out, all our phones were dead, basically, we couldn't call nobody. >> reporter: across the state, 2.4 million customers, 60% of the population have no power. the worst of it was probably right along the coast, in towns like point pleasant beach, wher
